I had my 39 weeks appt today. Everything is still good as usual this pregnancy! I gained the first pounds I have gained in weeks but I ate horribly and did barely anything so it was no surprise. Blood pressure great, measuring "big" at 41 weeks, baby heartrate at 130.
The midwife wanted to check me and strip my membranes but I declined. I am not technically late yet and my family would have a hard time figuring out being at the delivery this weekend. It could be done if I went on my own but there is no reason to push the envelope lol. I decided that I feel no need to know where I stand...it is just a number that I will end up putting too much stock into.
Anyway I go back on Tuesday, my actual due date, and will get checked and stripped then if I feel that it is right at the time. I think they also routinely do a NST at that point just to make sure things are fine. I seriously have always thought I was going to go on the 23rd so we will see...
Thanks *Kiliki* for the precious siggy!
